Gif viewer

World's simplest gif tool

This online utility lets you see a live preview of GIF animations. You can view a GIF frame by frame at a faster or slower speed to carefully examine each frame. The viewer can also be reversed and you can view a GIF in reverse. Created by GIF experts from team Browserling.

Gif viewer tool What is a gif viewer?
This is a browser-based GIF animation viewer. You often need to view individual frames of a GIF but as GIFs usually play at a very fast speed, it's hard to see each frame in detail. With this program, you can make an animated GIF go slower and specify which frame to view in more detail and it will be frozen and displayed in the output frame area. If the GIF is already slow, then you can make it go a little bit faster. Sometimes, it's useful to view GIF frames in the reverse order. By selecting the "View a Live GIF Backwards" mode, the frames will be reversed. Another popular use case of freezing a frame is creating a thumbnail of a GIF animation. To accommodate this use, we also added a "Viewer Zoom" option that lets you change the size of frozen GIF frames. It's useful if a GIF is very small and you need to see more details in it, or if a GIF is too big, you can make the frame smaller. Along with this option, there's also a "Sharp Zoom" setting, which allows you to sharpen or smoothen the pixels of the frozen frame. If you need to zoom the whole GIF, not just one frame, then please use our Zoom a GIF tool. Gifabulous!
Gif viewer examples Click to use
Milk and Coffee
In this example, we view a GIF animation frame by frame of pouring milk into coffee. The GIF has 24 frames and we give the viewer 200 milliseconds to show one frame. We also stop and freeze the first frame to make a PNG thumbnail from it. (GIF source: Pexels.)

Reverse Spruting Seeds
In this example, we use the "Backwards GIF" viewer mode to see the GIF in reverse. The animation is shown from the 20th frame (end of GIF) to the 1st frame (start of GIF) with a pause of 150ms between the frames. In the output box, we freeze the 9th frame and at the same time zoom it to just 80% of the original size. To hide the quantized pixels in the output image, we disable the sharp-zoom option that makes the pixels smooth. (GIF source: Wikipedia.)

Epic GIF Thumbnail
In this example, we use our GIF viewer program to closely examine every movement of the Kongou Kokuretsuzan (KKZ) character from the Street Fighter III game. We find that the most epic frame is 47th that shows the full force of KKZ's blow, so we freeze it and create a downloadable thumbnail from it. (Source: Capcom.)
